This lens shows great promise for astrophotography with excellent star tests, especially considering the low price. The TTArtisan 11mm f/2.8 is the first native RF lens I’ve tried on my Canon EOS Ra (all others have been EF-adapted lenses). As this is a lens designed for the shorter flange distance of newer mirrorless, full-frame cameras, it cannot be adapted to older DSLR bodies. This is major draw-back as many photographers have not yet made the switch to mirrorless, but inexpensive, excellent lenses like this one might convince some out there to try a newer mirrorless body. I found the sweet spot for this lens in terms of balancing photographic speed with star performance was around f/3.5 – f/4. I did not see large improvements in corner star shape past f/4. f/2.8 was fine at center, but very soft in the corners/edges.

Minimal star distortion on full frame sensor, esp. at f/3.5+
